From CBS News Sunday Morning, here’s a video which every photographer should watch simply for its message.
On Sunday, October 22, 2017 anyone interested is invited to come along as we do a Photo Outing to Eakin Creek Canyon Provincial Park. We will congregate at the Lac des Roches viewpoint for an 0900 departure. Or you can meet us at the Eakin Creek parking area (when travelling west from Little Fort, it is the pull out just after the bridge over Lemieux Creek) at 0930. We will spend a few hours photographing this beautiful creek upstream along the stretch from its intersection with the Telus the right-of-way to the waterfall.
To get ready for the Photo Outing, take a moment to watch this video. It will show you why you should bring a polarizer, a macro lens, a flashlight (or small LED light), and a reflector (I will have a reflector for you to use if you don’t have one). Lets hope it’s a gray day! Whatever the weather, the outing will go forward, so dress appropriately (yes Mum ).
If you have any questions or comments be sure to come to our next BLPG meeting on Thursday, October 19 where we will settle on the final details.
Hankering after a new, better, more powerful, bells-and-whistles festooned camera? Better read this first.

Alright photographers – here’s your assignment for July and August: take some multiple exposure photographs.
Some of you have cameras which limit you to only two images appearing in an in-camera multiple exposure. Others have cameras which allow from two to ten photos to be stacked into a single multiple exposure. It doesn’t matter which type of camera you have – all can be used creatively to make interesting multiple exposures. You need to work at it though. Like everything in photography, you can’t just step outside and snap off masterpieces!
Here’s a few things you might want to try as you experiment:
New photos continue to be added to the BLPG website.
Since we meet twice a month where, among other things, we view 30 or 40 new photos submitted by members, and since those photos are added to our website, there are always new treasures to see.
In the past little while some of us have gone to the Ancient Forest, Mount Robson, waterfalls, Bella Coola, Farwell Canyon, Victoria and other parts of the world. Travelers bring back photos for our viewing pleasure. And for yours.
Why not take a peek?
Here’s an article about a photo exhibition in Colfax, WA which is interesting reading for those familiar with the Palouse area of south eastern Washington state.
Hidden in the article is the suggestion that playing with the colour channels of multiple exposures of the same scene can bring out some wonderful looks. The photos of Tom Mohr certainly demonstrate that. The highly edited photographs are made to represent exquisite paintings.
You can see more about Mohr by doing a Google search for “Tom Mohr Palouse” and looking at the Images.
There’s a series on Netflix which is kind of interesting for any photographer. It’s called Abstract: The Art of Design, and delves into the creative design process. Because the designers are from such different fields, much of what is explored will resonate with photographers.
If you have Netflix, try the first episode – it’s funny and thought provoking.
